This morning

Tree sculptor Tommy Craggs puts the finishing touches on a Montreal Cyprus tree on the corner of St. Anne’s Park in Raheny, Dublin 5  commissioned by Dublin City Council.

Tommy began work on the  project for three weeks in Autumn last year and has spent another two weeks this year finishing the project. It is believed the tree Is close to 200 years old.

Tommy worked in forestry until taking up sculpting nine years ago.

In fairness.

    And everyone’s first thought is “that’s amazing…hopefully they don’t wreck it within a week”

    Pretty impressive stuff. Just wondering, though, whether the tree was dead, diseased, or in danger of doing some damage?

    Tommy Craggs, excellent tree sculptor name. Almost mafia-like.

    Hey maybe me get Tommy Craggs in and eh, you know… sculpt you a tree, know what I’m talkin’ bout?
